Just because you are sitting still during meetings, doesn't mean you can't be exercising. You can use the conference room table to do a variety of toning and strengthening exercises.

  • First try to lift the table.
  • Put your hand under the table.
  • Press up against the table.
  • Continue until your muscles are tired.
  • Do this one hand at a time or both together.

Next, push the table into the floor.

  • Put hand on table, palm down.
  • Press down as strongly as you can.
  • Stop when your muscles are tired.
  • You can do this one hand at a time or both together if it looks more natural.

Using a shoulder shrug when answering, "I don't know" allows you to work in this exercise.

  • Raise the top of your shoulders toward ears.
  • Hold for three to five seconds.
  • Relax.

You'll appear attentive, while exercising your whole body with this move.

  • Sit on the edge of chair.
  • Press down on table with both hands.
  • At same time lift legs as high as you can.
